Fall salmon fishing is my thing so to speak, pretty much an expert at this point on the subject having pursued this for over 20 years in the Sebago region, I was wondering if the folks at Maineflyfish would be interested in a fall conclave in the Rangeley lakes region, teaching various flies, casting techniques and reading holding water as well as catch and release advice. We would need a base camp or motel for this to take place, there are a few great fall destinations in the area that would offer a decent chance at some quality fishing...myself I have not fished the area for over 10 years so it would be fun for myself as well. This is not intended as a spot burning expedition but a learning expedition for those interested.

As for dates,...thinking Sept. 17/18 or the last weekend 09/25/26

Sounds like a great idea, lodging? One of the sponsors? I might be guiding but will come if I am not

I think that's the week my wife and I will be at Black Brook Cove campground on Aziscohos Lake. If so I'm definately interested in joining the fun, and learning from those more experienced than I. ;) B)

Sounds interesting to me. My biggest concern would be expenses.

Sounds interesting. I like the Rangely area. If you are looking for a base camp, I would suggest Kennebago River Kamps. I've stayed there twice.

I know Reggie Hammond (owner of the camps and warden of the area) seems like more than reasonable rates at these camps and would make an excellent base for the outing,...we would have to put in a 50% deposit for the allotted time however, it will be worth the weekend if anyone can make it, but we will need a count very much prior...please let me know so I can get in touch with Reggie and make reservations.

Rent a camp and split it 3-4 ways and the cost will be minimal, even 2 ways would be a bargain, we could have potluck food and BYOB or drinks.

Spector, There was 9 of us up there this spring. Water was high and fishing was spotty. I really like KRKs. Great central location for rivers and lakes.

If you can't get anything in Rangeley, how about GLS or Moosehead area?

Fellas that's like spot burning a very small camp facility here on the internet.
Better book soon for fall fishing as you may find your out of luck later.
Lots of lurkers looking here and they may beat you to the punch!

I will be there both weekends and would really enjoy this. Great idea.
Give a man a fish, he eats for a day....teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

I'd try to make it, I know the owners of an Inn in Stratton, ME. I know it's a ways away, but if we can't fit everyone in camps down there, it wont be as busy, and the camping's CHEAP! The pond fishing up in Eustis is out of this world also, there's some rivers up there that are grade A also.

There is always staying at a campground in the Rangeley area. A few years ago, some of us camped at Cupsuptic campground. We fished the Magalloway and the Rapid.

Since they are sponsors, we might be able to get a deal on the rates. Especially if they have Housekeeping Plans.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
